Do You Love unputdownable Serial Killer Thriller Books? Then Dark City is the hard boiled crime book for you!
A must read for all those who like to sit uncomfortably on the edge of their seats.
Dark City is the fourth book in the Nick Harland detective series. In this one we follow him on his most perplexing and disturbing case to date, as he tracks down a serial killer from the past.
The book begins with an elderly man being released from prison, after serving seventeen years for a double murder. A few days after his release a young woman is snatched from outside a London pub.
The police seem to be dragging their heels, so the family of the missing girl call on the services of the tough, uncompromising ex murder squad detective, turned Private Investigator, Nick Harland. During his initial investigation another girl suddenly goes missing, he then gets a tip off that Charles Thorpe had just been released from prison. Nick knows the killer, as he was the detective who put him behind bars when he was a detective in the murder squad. And so the hunt is now on for Thorpe, and Nick will not rest until Thorpe is found, and he promises that Thorpe will pay the ultimate price for his crimes this time around.
Much more can’t be revealed, as it would give too much of the exciting plot away.
This is a fast paced dark and gritty story, packed with hard hitting action, highs and lows, intrigue and tension. This story has characters, that are good, and sometimes very, very bad. Dark City is crime noir in the truest sense.
“Crime Noir at its Best”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Marta Cheng
Dark City by Bill Carson is a thrilling ride worth the price of admission. Twenty-three-year-old Sally Fenton has gone missing and Nick Harland of the Harland Detective Agency has been hired by her family to find her after the police investigation turns up few leads. When Sally’s body is found a short time later, Nick has a strange sense of déjà vu that he can’t put his finger on but it soon turns his guts sour when he learns from the lead detective on the case that Charles Edward Thorpe a.k.a. The Fallen Angel, a murdering Catholic priest, had been released from prison shortly before Sally went missing. The fallen angel case had been Nick’s first murder investigation as lead detective twenty years earlier. Charles Thorpe never reported to his parole officer since being released from prison and with Nick now retained by Sally Fenton’s family to find her killer, the ex-priest is his prime suspect. Dark City has gritty settings, tense atmosphere and some fast-paced dialogue that is sure to keep lovers of crime noir voraciously flipping through the pages until the last one has been read. A great read!

I had no real desire to write books; in fact it was something that I had never really thought about. I worked as a nightclub bouncer for just over four years and in that time I had been involved in numerous altercations, sometimes there were amusing situations but most were not. I began by making a record of the more unusual and violent incidents that occurred and put them into a diary. After four years I had accumulated quite a lot of material. So I decided to put it all together, the result is what you read in Show No Fear.
I enjoyed the writing experience so much that I enrolled in an Open University fiction writing course which after a year of hard study I passed.
I have now written several books covering various subjects; however the three crime novels Necessary Evils its sequel Nemesis and the soon to be released Never Say Die are my best work to date.
Crime fiction is something that I am most passionate about and I now consider myself first and foremost to be a crime fiction writer and I am pleased to say that my books have received some excellent reviews. I have just finished writing Never Say Die and I am currently working on the fourth in the crime thriller series, no title has sprung to mind as yet for that one.
